The new Suffolk University/USA Today poll of 800 unlikely voters and adults not registered to vote finds:
* 34 percent of unlikely or nonvoters say they are moderates, 28 percent are conservatives, 27 percent are liberals, 8 percent “don’t know.”
* 31 percent of unlikely or nonvoters are not registered, 30 percent are Democrats, 17 percent are independent and 14 percent are Republicans.
That means among unlikely voters who are registered, 49 percent are Democrats, 28 percent are independent and 23 percent are Republican. That sharply contrasts with the latest Gallup poll of nationwide political party identification, where 31 percent identify as Democrats, 40 percent as independents and 27 percent as Republicans.
This poll of 800 U.S. adults who say it is unlikely or a “50/50 chance” they will vote was conducted July 30 to Aug. 8 and released Wednesday.
